I ordered Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male through Purplle, the bottle is genuine but the cologne inside I am not so sure. The smell only last for a few minutes.

On a side note I ordered Aigner Oud no1 from Jabong and I am very happy with the cologne, last for a few hours on my skin.

Could anyone please recommend a good antiperspirant for men? Most of the shops and e-commerce websites stock only deodorants.

Not sure about this website, though i did see and was thinking to buy last week, but i have been purchasing from http://www.deobazaar.com/ and its all genuine, with good price when compared to Purplle.

Afraid to buy from Amazon/flipkart as its mostly sold by seller, and see lot of reviews saying fake.

my first order from unboxed : Chrome by Azzarro @ Rs.1299.
Delivered in 4 days, with good bubble wrapping around the bottle, and didnt have any box.
Bottle is overall clean, while the cap has a very slight chipping, nothing to worry. Hope the juice is original, faith!

The smell is quite good & pleasant, but not really extraordinary. Its not very strong & dont think its easily noticeable. I put some sprays in morning, and sitting in office whole day, I could still get a faint smell even by early evening.

in some previous post it was mentioned about Unboxed and Perfumery.
I surely believe there is some connection between these two companies.
Perfumery's Team refers Founder as Mr. Ajay Kumar Dhir, a veteran & respectable name in IT industry, and it also mentions associated with some "Software Startups Association".

few days back I was in Singapore and bought some perfumes from a store, low priced & original stuff.

Are you allowed to carry back so many of them? Is there a limit per person, even in luggage?

Im not sure if really any rule exists for bringing such stuff, and I feel the my quantity was quite less Now I bit regret of not buying even more perfumes from SG store, as the prices were really good. I've seen people bringing so much stuff (shampoo, medicines, food, liquor, electronics, etc). Specifically I know that power-bank (portable chargers) are not allowed in check-in luggage, and also if you bring any drone (quadcopter/uav, any) then India customs may stop you once your luggage is screened.

Side Note-1: Liquor is limited to only two bottles (2 liters) per passport, doesn't matter if you purchased at duty-free airport store of foreign land, or the duty-free store of arrival in India. This applies for hand-luggage, and Im sure that mostly nobody would take chance of stuffing such bottles in their check-in luggage : in the event of bottle breaking, the smell in clothes will remind you for a long time !

Side Note-2: An the Mumbai arrival, after clearing the immigration formality, once you take your luggage from the belt, see if has any chalk mark ("X" sign)! The luggage is already scanned at back side, and suspicious ones are marked, then loaded on the belt. Now when you try to exit, even from the Green channel, your luggage is checked from far-off, and mostly only your hand-bags are asked to be entered in the screening machine. Hope you understood the process
regards,

As far as I know, the limit for carrying perfumes in the cabin is 100ml total as informed to me while flying to Goa. Didn't know what it was for checked in luggage and if it was different for international flights.
